Hello. I am a Motion beginner and I have noticed that type set in a Motion project is ALWAYS substituted when the project is sent to Compressor on the final video is assessed.
Also, the more I use Motion, the more I realize how unstable the program is. I use the latest FCS2 with updates under OS X 10.5.5 on a MacPro. I am trying to determine the when and hows of the unexpected quits.
Drag it to the trash (Don't empty it, relaunch motion and see if it solves the problem)
Are you exporting your project first?
If you export your finished project as a QT movie encoded in the animation codec it will export your exact project. If you want you can then bring it into compressor and do whatever you want with it. Be careful what codec you compress to as it may effect the quality but I'll leave that up to you to play with.
